Andy's 2018 Tour de Cure Web Page!
2018 Tour de Cure is right around the corner!
On Saturday, September 8th I will be participating in the Tour de Cure bike ride for the American Diabetes Association. It's really hard to believe that this is really my 12th ride (2004, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2 rides in 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 and now 2018).
The ride this year is later. Not sure why but still need your help to raise money for it. The funds will be used in the fight to prevent and cure diabetes as well as improve the lives of everyone affected by diabetes.
If you’re asking why I do this…it’s because of my Mom. A few years ago she had a rough year dealing with her diabetes. Luckily I was home for her when she went through with what she did. In the middle of the night I witnessed a couple seizures that were brought on because either her sugar levels were too high or too low. I’d never seen anything like this and it was rough seeing a family member go through it. I am sure there are others who have gone through the same thing so that’s why if doing a ride to raise money for this cause can help, then that’s what I’ll do.
Now comes the part where I need your help?
Last year for 2017 I raised over $1500 for the VA ride so my goal for 2018 is to raise that or even more. I started with a goal of $500, raised it to $1000 and recently raised it to $1500. I even started myself off by donating $100. Back in 2013 I raised $2,500 thanks to family, friends, and coworkers. So I’m now begging for your help. I could really use your support this year. Even if it’s only $5. Every dollar counts.
No matter how small or large, your generous gift will help improve the lives of more than 23 million Americans who suffer from diabetes, in the hope that future generations can live in a world without this disease. Donations are also tax deductible.
Together, we can all make a difference!
Thank you for making a generous contribution to this cause that is so important to me!
